Project Management Core

Graduate Certificate in Project Management

The courses covered in the Project Management Core curriculum are listed below. It is important to note that these 21 hours are taught as an integrated body of topics. While ultimately mapping to individual courses, teaching is by 4 hour blocks of topics. This is done to provide the opportunity to integrate different topics while studying/discussing them as opposed to the traditional way of working one course at a time. Modeling the learning experience like actual work facilitates the learning and application of the principles.
